 Calling Sequence DerivativeTutor(f, a..b) DerivativeTutor(f, var=a..b)

Parameters

 f - (optional) algebraic expression in one variable var a..b - (optional) interval var - (optional) variable

Description

 • The DerivativeTutor(f) command launches a tutor interface that plots the derivatives of f on the interval a..b.  If f is a derivative Diff(g) or diff(g), the tutor plots the derivatives of g on a..b.
 If f is not specified, DerivativeTutor uses a default function.
 If a..b is not specified, DerivativeTutor uses a default interval.
 If var is not specified, DerivativeTutor uses a default variable.
